    I was jailbroken exactly once - with the jailbreakme.com jailbreak (sorry I've forgotten the name). The thing is, just during the first few seconds of booting, there were a few flashing pixels and IT MADE ME CRAZY that my wonderful user experience was somehow marred. I want to know that my user experience is perfectly and lovingly tuned by Apple's caring craftsmen.

    For me it comes down to user experience. I came from a Windows Mobile phone. I had every software that you can imaging and it modded to perfection. The thing is - the user experience was just crap.

    When I use my iPhone or iPad, I want to know that it is perfect, and while yeah, it annoyed me at first that I couldn't do stuff that I could on my WinMo phone, the experience and smoothness was just amazing! Since then, with iOS 4.2 and apps like GoodReader and AirVideo, I really have nothing more to complain about.

    I was jailbroken on both my earlier 3G iPhone and my WiFi iPad. Right now, I have the iPhone 4 (stock) and I just upgraded the iPad from JB 3.2.1 to iOS 4.2.1. I'll probably leave it at is for a while, but I really miss SB settings and being able to use the iPhone as a WiFi hotspot.

    Cheers,

    I have yet to come across anything I have to do on the iPad I can't do already with iOS.

    I'm not jailbroken because there isn't one available yet for iOS 4.2 :D

    JB my iPhone 3GS via jailbeakme.com, just to see how it worked. It was a great experience for me, and made my 3GS more customizable for. I recently JB my iPhone 4 using Limera1n, so I could use the MyWi application that I downloaded from Cydia to connect my iPad to for data usage. This works great, and saves me from having to use one of AT&T's iPad data plans..... Can't JB my iPad at the moment, as I am now running iOS 4.2.1, which is only jailbeakable via tethering at this time, and I'd rather not do it that way.....

    I've yet to read of a must-have app which would make me want to jailbreak.
    The iPad's not prefect but it sure gets a lot of things right as is.

    Plus it's only a few months to the next version.....
